A large-flowered variety of penstemon with velvety deep purple foxglove-like flowers and even darker lobes that are highlighted by a white throat. Penstemons are perfect for adding late colour to the garden as they continue flowering until the first frosts if deadheaded regularly. The compact form of this variety makes it a great choice for pots and containers - or the front of a herbaceous border.

  • Garden care: Remove the faded blooms regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a dry mulch around the base of the plant to protect the roots from frost damage and cut back in spring when new shoots appear low down on the stem. Lift and divide congested clumps in spring.
